Halsey is the alias of New York-based pop artist Ashley Frangipane. The New Jersey native took her moniker from a New York L train subway stop, and her adopted city plays a large role in both the sound and lyrics of her dark, gritty electro pop, which has been compared to acts like Chvrches and Lorde.

Based on the strength of her first single, "Ghost," she signed a deal with Capitol-owned electronic/dance label Astralwerks in early 2014. Her debut EP, Room 93, arrived in October of that same year. In 2015, Halsey released her debut full-length album, Badlands, which featured production from Lido, the Futuristics, Son Lux, and others.

Included on the album were the singles "Ghost," "New Americana," "Colors," and "Castle," a version of which also appeared on the soundtrack to The Huntsman: Winter's War. Badlands debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 chart and sold well, ultimately achieving gold certification status.

Early in 2017, Halsey returned with the single "Not Afraid Anymore," which was featured on the "Fifty Shades Darker" soundtrack. Following a mysterious global treasure hunt, Halsey slowly unveiled her sophomore album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, in 2017. - AllMusic
